About the offer

Chemotherapy remains among the most effective methods of late-stage cancer treatment, including cases with distant metastases. Ear cancer is not an exception. Chemotherapy can be used as a primary treatment method, as a part of combined treatment, or as a part of adjuvant treatment (additional forms of treatment that help to prevent relapses). Still, doctors should thoroughly examine their health status to ensure patients can withstand chemo. Chemotherapy might also be the best option for patients with technically unresectable ear cancer (meaning that the tumor can’t be removed due to technical issues). Oncologists currently use dozens of drugs for chemotherapy for ear cancer treatment, including doxycycline, paclitaxel, cisplatin, 5-fluorouracil, and docetaxel. Still, the most suitable treatment option is based on the cancer’s features and the current patient’s condition. Most often, chemotherapy for ear cancer is delivered via the dropper or intravenous injections. Still, other options (e. g. , oral administration form: pills, capsules) might also be available. A single course of chemotherapy might take anywhere from 4 to 10 treatment sessions. Usually, the treatment session of chemotherapy lasts for a few hours. Patients have extensive rest periods between chemotherapy treatment sessions to cope with cytotoxic effects.
